Smoky Hollow Outdoor Resort: A Twist on Smoky Mountain Camping
Have you ever been camping in the Smoky Mountains? If not, there is a new camping, or should we say “glamping,” opportunity now open in Sevierville! Smoky Hollow Outdoor Resort just opened this past November and is changing the way people think of modern day camping. Here is everything you need to know about the experience and how the owners are putting a whole new twist on Smoky Mountain camping:
Overview of the Resort
At Smoky Hollow Outdoor Resort, you are able to enjoy the great outdoors without giving up some of the luxuries you have at home. When you stay in one of their luxury camping sites, you will have access to electricity, heat and air conditioning, and Wi-Fi. Not only will you have some things that make life easier, but you can also choose from three unique Smoky Mountain camping experiences!
Three Ways to Glamp
The most interesting thing about this new camping resort in the Smoky Mountains is that there are three different accommodations for lodging. Depending on what amenities you are looking for and the size of your group, you can choose the adventure that is right for you. Here is a breakdown of all the exciting new options:
1. Glamping tipis
The tipis at Smoky Hollow Outdoor Resort are perfect for a couples’ getaway. All the tipis include a king side bed, mini fridge, microwave, bath towels for two, a dinette set, and a charcoal grill! We guarantee the experience of camping inside a tipi is one that you don’t want to miss out on!
2. Conestoga Wagons
This is arguably the most unique style of camping that the resort offers. The wagons are designed to resemble the ones that were used in the 18th and 19th centuries. Back in the olden days, they were used to transport goods and were pulled by horses, mules, or oxen. However, the ones you will find at the resort are probably a little nicer than the ones from those days. These are the perfect camping spots for small families. They include a king size bed, bunk beds, a coffee pot, a picnic table, and so much more!
3. Honeybear Hideout Cabin
The cabin at Smoky Hollow allows your family to enjoy nature while still having all the luxuries of your everyday life. It has a full sized bathroom, a queen size bed, and a washer and dryer!
More Things to Know
When you stay at Smoky Hollow Outdoor Resort, there is a good chance you will see some wildlife roaming around the property! Since the campground has opened, there have been reports of people seeing goats, chickens, deer, and bobcats! The combination of wildlife viewing and the landscape of the Smoky Mountains makes this one of the hottest new places to stay in the Smokies.
Although the resort just recently opened, the owners have been amazed by the popularity of their new camping experience. In the near future, they have said the resort will add more wagons and tipis. In addition, Smoky Hollow is getting ready to launch a new section of the campground, which will feature amazing tree houses for people to stay in! If you want to check out this unique glamping adventure, they are located in Sevierville!
What to Bring
Because these camping styles are a little more on the luxurious side, they provide some of the things that you would have to pack for a normal camping trip. With that being said, they still recommend you bring along a few items that will make your stay more enjoyable. Some of the things you should plan on packing include food, cooking utensils, extra blankets, toiletries, and non-slip shoes. Each site comes with two camping chairs, but if you are expecting guests you will want to bring extras for them.

Whether you want to stay in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, or Sevierville, we have glorious cabins located throughout the Smoky Mountains.
